Description of Norfolk Brickyard
The Brickmaker’s Retreat is in a glade, on a remote and forgotten brickyard, on the North Norfolk Coast. It is on a secluded part of a campsite with basic but well made facilities.
It’s not going too far to call it a “Stunning safari tent, set in an 18th century brickyard”.
5 mins by car from some of the best beaches in the country.
The tent is 30 mins walk from Holkham Hall, one of the finest stately homes in the world, with countless attractions.
The campsite was set up by a husband and wife team who live in a cottage near the entrance to the 10 acre site.
With clearings in the woods for bring your own camping the site has gained a strong following amongst people who love “wild” camping.
The Brickmaker’s Retreat is the first proper glamping tent on the site.
It has a four-poster, king-size bed as well as single bunk bed.
The spacious 5m x 5m interior is fully furnished in a quirky antique style with dresser, chairs, reclining chair, foot stools and rugs.
There is standing room all the way round, space to play board games and for relaxing. There are large windows in the tent which offer a great view out into the woods.
The tent has a raised wooden floor, wood burning stove, candles, battery powered lights and a paraffin lantern for outside.
There is a two ring gas burner, water and all the kitchen essentials for self-catering, pots and pans, serving dishes, plates, glasses, cups etc.
The raised floor extends to a large, covered deck at the front of the tent. The deck has a table with 4 chairs which is perfect for dining by candlelight. The food prep area is also outside on the covered deck.
The campfire area just a few feet from the tent is ideal for cooking, chilling with a beer or toasting marshmallows.
